Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Favorite Seuss book??

I figure, anything but Liam's topic. Gotta get that thing off the board, for it has run it's course.

I've read a lot of Dr. Suess the last few years. I really like The Sleep Book and Fox in Sox.

If you don't understand how this relates to GD, sorry. But we've talked poetry here before. Does Suess count? He's my favorite poet! ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha..........

Always had ablast with the ABC book. Gotta love Aunt Annie's Alligator. My little one practically had it memorized before he even knew what most of it meant.
The Lorax is also pretty cool - great message for the environmentally minded.
May need to go home tonight and read some Dr. Seuss...
It has been a few years.

YES. The ABC book. My daughter learned the alphabet at a very young age. That book was a part of that.

The rhythm, cadence and terrific illustrations are just great for little kids.

I loved Suess growing-up and I enjoy his work even more today with my kids.

For me, it's gotta be Fox in Socks. The whole book is one tongue-twister after another, and they get harder as the book goes on!!
Try reading it aloud with a couple of nuggy bowls and a couple of friends on hand. I guarantee you'll be rolling on the floor
laughing your lungs out within minutes.
And BTW - good old Dr. Seuss also illustrated all of his own
books. What a genius.

Go Dog Go! and The Cat in the Hat have always been my favourites. I also like Green Eggs and Ham and Horton Hears a Who.

Green Eggs & Ham is the quintesential Seuss.

The Lorax has the best message. A great way to introduce your kids sustainability and the delicate balance of nature. Here's the story with some pictures:

Another old Seuss classic that you may not be as familiar with is "To Think That I Saw it on Mulberry Street"
I'm showing my age here - but I first had this read to me (with pictures on camera) by Captain Kangaroo on TV, circa 1962 or so.
The story is about a little boy sent to the store for bread. He's so bored out of his mind, he sees a horse and cart on Mulberry St., and his wild (trippin??) imagination creates a whole circus parade out of it.
A tour de force in exaggerated tall tales. Fun to read to kids and as usual, the pictures are incredible.
Dr. Flashback saying - "Support Family Values - get stoned and read to your kids today !!"

Now some Seuss that few are familiar with are his very first books, I believe written in the 1930s. The one that comes to mind is "The King and His Stilts". It is a real story and it does not rhyme. My kids love it, and so do the adults. By the way, my sister in law out in San Diego makes money on the side by doing Dr. Seuss readings and it is very animated.She is so good that she has been featured in the newspaper.

Hi 6kidsdad - Thanks for the input. Tell me more about your sister's biz. I've often thought of doing that her in my area(not necessarily for $$). I love reading Dr. Suess and I have some really funny voices for many of his stories.

Please email any info you have to andy@gemut.com.

Thanks!!
